The highest motive is to be like water

The first line of the dedication of merit for a Buddhist service I had the chance to attend for a while when I was in Pittsburgh began, "The highest motive is to be like water." I was recently reminded of that verse, and more recently I mentioned the (late) Venerable Shih Shen Lung recently, who was the dharma teacher for the monk who had established the sangha in which I practiced. I was looking up something from the website of Shen Lung's sangha, and I found this image overlayed with the verse. In turn it is offered it to all the visitors who pass through here.
